Willits Bypass Project

Categorized Under: Environment, Transportation



ICF prepared a Wetlands Creation Feasibility Study and a Mitigation and Monitoring Proposal for the project to comply with local, state, and federal requirements including the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Clean Water Act (CWA), and the state and federal Endangered Species Acts (ESAs).

Environmental issues that were studied included oak woodlands, rare plants, special-status wildlife and fish impacts, water quality and wetlands impacts, and property evaluation for mitigation feasibility. ICF also assisted Caltrans in preparing permit applications submitted to the California Department of Fish and Game and Regional Water Quality Control Board. ICF is also working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on finalizing the Section 404 CWA authorization.

This project has required ongoing collaborative and creative solutions to a broad range of environmental issues and interagency coordination. The responsiveness of our team’s performance resulted in the client requesting ICF to provide additional and continued support for Mitigation and Monitoring Proposal refinement, implementation, and intensive baseline data collection for mitigation compliance.
